The Medical Reports

This weekend was a very special weekend for me. I got to celebrate what I believe in and stand for—helping others. This is something I am very proud of. I got to once again reflect on the many people in my life whom I love and that have helped me on my journey; and in contrast to that, the people who have been toxic in my life, like my father, Mike Rinder. He is in short: an abuser of my mom, a hater, a bigot, and a bully.

I am still flabbergasted every time I stop and reflect on the damage that was done to my mother by my father, Mike Rinder—just how much he harmed her, how much he still victim shames my mom—the victim of his domestic violence. Because of this, I feel empowered to keep speaking up and telling the truth about his brutality.

This is what brought me to do a video on all the medical data and reports I have illustrating the extent of my father, Mike Rinder’s abuse. And the pain my mom is in. And I think it shows the magnitude of damage that was done to my mom physically by Mike Rinder in that domestic violence attack. And the subsequent medical treatments that have had to happen as a result of that domestic violence attack.

I laid them all out—not even sheet by sheet—and it is still quite extensive.

These documents specifically have to do with her shoulder that was damaged by my father, Mike Rinder, when he domestically abused her. The reason why I thought to show this was because when I went to go look through them again recently, it goes on and on and on and on.

There has been a lot of medical attention that my mom has received so that she's able to live with the crippling pain of the fractured shoulder and destroyed nerves. She is in pain every day of her life.

To this day my father, Mike Rinder, has not apologized. He has never done anything to help her. And I can’t say that enough because it just seems so wrong and so against any human’s natural instincts to help, to not be cruel or, you know, if you make a mistake, you fix it. But he hasn’t done that. And I've spent every day since then basically taking care of my mom to ease her pain.

The fact that my father, Mike Rinder, is getting away with having domestically abused her, and gets supported by people who know he domestically abused his wife, is beyond words. The fact that he is still supported by some, in addition to being inconceivable to me, also gives me cause to keep speaking out. Domestic violence is a gruesome thing and domestic violence perpetrators like Mike Rinder should not be supported.

I don't want people supported that abuse women. I want domestic violence victims to be taken care of. And I want to make sure that they're getting the support that they need.
